You should give that a try.  You can start with conhost and get a cmd

it appears we have reached the bounds of your knowledge. trying to launch
conhost.exe on its own is a noop. if you double click the EXE, or you call it
from the run box, it will not show up in the task manager. if you ARE seeing it,
its because you have launched one of these:

- cmd.exe
- powershell.exe
- sh.exe

and *it* has called conhost.exe. perhaps you should actually try this before
commenting further.

I agree if there are any.
